Air Century to Resume Aruba-Punta Cana Route in Effort to Boost Tourism

Santo Domingo.- The Aruba Airport Authority (AAA) announced the restoration of Air Century's international connection between Aruba and Punta Cana, reflecting a significant expansion in the airline's services. This development strengthens ties with Aruba, offering flights on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

The decision to improve flight offerings comes in response to increased demand and the growing popularity of travel to Aruba. The route, which initially operated twice a week from La Isabela International Airport (JBQ) to Aruba (AUA), has now been expanded to accommodate this increase in interest.

It is notable that the Punta Cana-Aruba route existed previously, but was discontinued in 2011 and subsequently disappeared from focus. The restoration of this connection marks a significant resurgence.

Omar Chahín, president of Air Century, expressed his enthusiasm for inaugurating the route from the Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ), an important entry point for tourism to the Dominican Republic. He highlighted the importance of the route to boost tourism development and provide more connectivity options. Chahin emphasized that this new route aims to promote multi-destination travel, offering passengers diverse and memorable experiences in different cities.

Additionally, the expansion aligns with Air Century's strategic focus of expanding its flight connections within the Caribbean region. These expansions are considered crucial opportunities for Aruba Airport.

JoAnne Meau Arends, representative of the AAA commercial area, celebrated the incorporation of the Punta Cana service and expressed optimism to continue exploring future opportunities. This new route is set to bring a positive impact on the tourism sectors of both Aruba and the Dominican Republic, contributing to the broader economic and cultural exchange in the Caribbean region.
